relatek 8180 & compiling driver


I've bought REALTEK 8180l Wireless card.
I found its linux dirver but they're not compiled.

How does I do?

I would like to use it on clarckconnect(anyone know?) but the distro didin't have gcc, so I must compile it on other linux box. (Cross-compiling?)
Is it possible? What's way?

Thanks to anyone who help me!

Either you compile it on another box... but you must have kernel sources corresponding to your distro and the same compiler version that compile your kernel.
Or if you have enough free space, install a temporary gcc on your distro... just to compile your modules (but if you don't have a compiler installed, I think that you don't have kernel sources installed...)
